GOING INWARD—IF YOU DARE

Forecast for Monday, April 26th
Scorpio Full Moon at 7°06′


A line from Herman Melville’s “Moby Dick” reads that “it is not down on any map; true places never are…”

Strange emanations—the mysteries of life forces… a most true and sacred place found only deep, deep within one’s own soul.

Oxygen is the essence of all life on this planet, yet, it becomes toxic when under pressure, or pressurized, such as underwater, down in the depths of the deep sea. At this depth, underwater, one cannot see the colors red or yellow… and one’s blood will actually bleed blue. Sound frequencies travel much faster under water, in deep sea, than they do on land or in the air, though this causes something of a confusion as to which direction the frequency is coming from…

Strange emanations—the mysteries of life forces.

Life forces are occurring, too, these days, from the depths of a very watery ocean within…

Shamanic astrologer Raven Kaldera describes the Scorpio full moon as one where “we witness the moment when the Cloaked One, who has journeyed to the depths, suddenly discovers a great truth: that when you go deep enough, you emerge into a place that is far beyond you, and Powers await you there.”

This is where we hear the sound frequencies of our soul.

When we go deeply enough within—unlike oxygen at levels of deep sea—all toxicities are actually dissolved. The trick, then, is in the going inward—if you dare.

Usually, ‘the sea’ is used as a symbol in literature to represent life and its hardships, its ebbs and flow.

The sea, with its daunting width and depth, rather simply, represents life itself. It may be quite calm, but it can become raging and even deadly in an instant, with the waves representing the sudden obstacles life throws our way.

It is through “taking a stand when faced with life’s challenges…” this this lunarly event falls, quite literally—the moon being in its fall in Scorpio—the “managing of power responsibly” can become weighted, corrupting, divisive, or even impotent…

Perhaps the most important parallellism between the sea and life in general is the unpredictability of both. A sudden change in weather brings upon giant waves that make it impossible to swim forward, and the only solution is to either struggle through these or go back to shore, much like a sudden obstacle in life which makes it impossible to move forward, the only solution is to go back a few steps.

Further, the ocean, by any stretch of the imagination, cannot be controlled… it is its own life force. Much like many of our illusions of our subconscious mind.

Like the deepest depths of the sea, we have not even properly initiated exploration of our subconscious, the psyche, the soul… anything and everything that is occurring within, underneath it all, within the deepest, darkest depths of the psyche—talk about a life force.

The degree through which this lunar event occurs, always celestials conveniently, is titled ‘a calm lake bathed in moonlight…’ suggesting that the soul, or inner psyche, is calm, with a “quiet openness to higher inspiration.”

Through influences of this lunarly event, it is possible that you will be strongly “challenged [by] powers hidden in the depths of the unconscious…”

However, as possibly a nod to the unpredictability of today’s forces, “…but a moment comes when all that really matters is to present a calm mind… the need for peace and the readiness to accept the illumination from above.”

Further, “in the situation facing you, you may need to get deep down below the surface to find out what’s really going on… it is down within your subconscious and intuitive wisdom that you must search for solutions—letting go of the intellect and allowing yourself to take a deep plunge into your inner self… whether there is a feeling of hidden depths or not, there may be a strong sense of things being reflected.”

Finally, Kaldera suggests that ultimately—today is a day to be awed… “the Priestess has been down to the darkness and up again into the light… she has dragged herself down the road of deep introspection and learned that the best way out is with the aid of Deeper Powers—however, as with everyone who touches the numinous, she discovers that there is no guarantee that the Deeper Powers are necessarily always going to speak to her or come at her call… thus she enters into the precarious longing of everyone with a personal relationship to the Universe, realizing painfully that sometimes her passions get in the way of hearing the call clearly… and yet her passions are a part of her that those Powers do not wish her to lose.”

Tangled up in blue… you, too, may be trying to divide black from white when all of it is simply a bunch of blue-gray—much like the vastness of the waves in the great wide ocean. And so letting go of the thinking mind that needs to incessantly sort each value of blue… simply feeling through the water around you and its ultimate clarity and wildly unpredictable transparency.

In this stillness of this moment—feel your inner truth… and then acknowledge this, reflected. 

Feel yourself finding the wave… there should be no confusion as to what direction anything is occurring—because everything is occurring within you, and this is all too clear now. Try to find meaning and renewed purpose through whatever circumstances are either claiming you, overpowering you, or transforming you… 

Strange emanations—the mysteries of life forces… a most true and sacred place found only deep, deep within one’s own soul.

It’s inside myself that I must create someone who will
understand.
